@Barnsley John the tensioner pulley bearing is easy to change if it’s that. Beware it’s a left hand thread on the pulley though. 
 

Im not using mine at the moment so if you need a comparison I’m happy to dig it out. I can also find the bearing part number if you want.

 

Or put your car on a diet and remove it all together.

just took it off and it does grumble a bit when spinning on your finger but can easy refit to show play

@Barnsley John that’s the exact video I used
 

And ordered 2 bearings as the one in the idler pulley is exactly the same.

both press in and out with a socket just watch you support the pulley properly and don’t damage the edge and remember that the tensioner is left hand thread and it’s an easy job

@Barnsley John

thanks for posting. Both my tensioner and idle pulley bearings were worn (lots of side to side movement and noisey when spun) so replaced both this afternoon.

 

bearing part numbver:  2 x SKF 6203-2RSH  @ £3.95 each

 

literally a 10 minute job.

 

Also discovered that the S2000 tensioner has a wear indictor mark to show if your serpentine belt needs replacing.  (photo off internet: not my car)

 

every day is a school day...!

Will this still be accurate with the A/C pulley missing, I guess we need a new belt ?

Fair point Rich. The standard s2k belt running all 6 pulleys is 1470mm.

 

The 5 pulley configuration, with the a/c pulley deleted is 1138mm

 

This gives a difference of 332mm or just over 25%.

 

So to account for the  percentage difference (in belt stretch) I suppose the maximum indicator mark should be treated as 25% less: ie when the wear indicator shows a 75% movement.

It's too cold in the garage else I was going to check mine to see if the bearings need changing, sounds cheap and worthwhile.
